This Little Girl

This Little Girl's Gone Rockin'

Ruth Brown

(Bobby Darin - Mann Curtis, ATLANTIC 1197, 1958)

I wrote my mom a letter and this is what I said
Well, I washed all the dishes and I did a lot more
I even bought the dinner at the grocery store
And now mom, you'll find the key next door
This little girl's gone rockin'
I left some biscuits for the pup
I put fresh water in his cup
And now I'm off, I'm gonna live it up
This little girl's gone rockin'
Well, I'll be home about twelve tonight
And not a minute-minute-minute later
Don't forget the front door light
That's all for now, I see you later maybe
You'll find these things that you wanted done
I'm off to meet that special one
And boy-oh-boy will we have fun
'Cause this little girl's gone rockin'

I'll be home about twelve tonight
And not a minute-minute-minute later
Now, don't you forget that front door light
That's all for now, I see you later maybe
You'll find these things that you wanted done
I'm off to meet that special one
And boy-oh-boy will we have fun
'Cause this little girl's gone rockin'
Yeah-yeah, this little girl's gone rockin'
Wow, this little girl's gone rockin'
Ooh, this little girl's gone rockin'

Also recorded in the UK by:
Janice Peters & The Frank Barber Band (EMI Records, 1958)
